International Jurists Award

It was exciting to know that the Samajwadi Party leader Mr.Mulayam Singh is being honoured with the 'prestigious' 'International Jurists Award - 2012' for his "unflinching contribution to the advancement of the Bar and the Bench". It is recognised that "his support to the development of the legal fraternity is unparalleled in the world".

I felt ashamed that I had never cared to learn about this aspect of MS. My shame started vanishing when I also remembered that International Jurists Award - 2007 was bestowed on Justice K.G.Balakrishnan in recognition to "his immeasurable contribution to the system of administration of justice in India" and on Her Excellency the President of India, Ms.Pratibha D.Patil in recognition of "her contribution as guardian of Constitution". Touche!
